‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 8 Finale ‘Flight’ Preview: Who’s Going to Die?

Grey’s Anatomy season 8 comes to an end next week with episode 24, “Flight,” and as expected with that title, it’s about a plane crash, the one that was shown at the end of episode 23, “Migration.”

Grey’s Season 8 Episode 24 “Flight” Promo

“Faced with a life threatening situation, the doctors must fight to stay alive while trying to save the lives of their peers; Bailey and Ben make a decision regarding their relationship; and Teddy is presented with a tempting offer. Meanwhile, Richard plans a special dinner for the residents.”

Yes, the residents are planning to (or have no choice but to) leave Seattle Grace behind in the near future, but will that all change after that plane crash at the end of “Migration”? Lives are at risk, and it looks like it’s going to be up to them to save each other—or risk losing a loved one. It has already been revealed that one character will be dying in this episode, while other lives will be hanging in the balance.

With the news of contracts being renewed for Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr. this week and Grey’s season 9 just announced, you have to wonder who will be around. Obviously it can’t be one of those six dying right? Three of them were in that crash, but they wouldn’t announce they renewed their contracts just to kill one of them off, right?

The Grey’s Anatomy season 8 finale promo for episode 24, “Flight” (below) shows what happens right after that plane crash. While Meredith, Cristina, and Mark can at least move around, other lives are in danger. Meredith can’t find Derek, and Cristina tells her he was sucked outside. Arizona and Lexie both seem to be injured, but it looks like Lexie’s trapped, and Mark says they have to get her out of there. She looks to be in worse condition. Will this lead to Mark realizing he wants to be with her? Will it be too late?

Meredith’s panicking—can you blame her for being in shock? She yells at Cristina, “We are going to die out here,” and the promo ends with her screaming for Derek. Where is Derek? Are they going to find him before the episode ends, or could he still be missing when “Flight” is over? If they find him, will he be severely injured? Someone is going to die, and right now, it’s not clear whose last episode this might be. However, it does look like Cristina may be the most levelheaded person of the group at the moment. Will she be able to help save some of their friends?
